Exodus 35

1 And Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel together and said unto them, "These are the words which the LORD hath commanded, that ye should do them: 2Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be for you a holy day, a Sabbath of rest to the LORD. Whosoever doeth work therein shall be put to death. 3Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations upon the Sabbath day." 4And Moses spoke unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying, "This is the thing which the LORD commanded, saying, 5`Take ye from among you an offering unto the LORD. Whosoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it, an offering of the LORD: gold and silver and brass; 6and blue and purple and scarlet, and fine linen and goats' hair; 7and rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins, and shittim wood; 8and oil for the light, and spices for anointing oil and for the sweet incense; 9and onyx stones, and stones to be set for the ephod and for the breastplate. 10"`And every wisehearted among you shall come and make all that the LORD hath commanded: 11the tabernacle, his tent and his covering, his clasps, and his boards, his bars, his pillars and his sockets; 12the ark and the staves thereof, with the mercy seat and the veil of the covering; 13the table and his staves and all his vessels, and the showbread; 14the candlestick also for the light, and his furniture and his lamps with the oil for the light; 15and the incense altar and his staves, and the anointing oil, and the sweet incense, and the hanging for the door at the entrance of the tabernacle; 16the altar of burnt offering with his brazen grate, his staves and all his vessels, the laver and his foot; 17the hangings of the court, his pillars and their sockets, and the hanging for the door of the court; 18the pegs of the tabernacle, and the pegs of the court and their cords; 19the clothes of service to do service in the holy place, the holy garments for Aaron the priest and the garments of his sons to minister in the priest's office.'" 20And all the congregation of the children of Israel departed from the presence of Moses. 21And they came every one whose heart stirred him up, and every one whom his spirit made willing, and they brought the LORD'S offering to the work of the tabernacle of the congregation, and for all his service and for the holy garments. 22And they came, both men and women, as many as were willinghearted, and brought bracelets and earrings, and rings and tablets, all jewels of gold; and every man who offered, offered an offering of gold unto the LORD. 23And every man with whom was found blue and purple and scarlet, and fine linen and goats' hair, and red skins of rams and badgers' skins, brought them. 24Every one who offered an offering of silver and brass brought the LORD'S offering; and every man with whom was found shittim wood for any work of the service brought it. 25And all the women who were wisehearted spun with their hands and brought that which they had spun, both of blue and of purple, and of scarlet and of fine linen. 26And all the women whose heart stirred them up in wisdom spun goats' hair. 27And the rulers brought onyx stones, and stones to be set for the ephod and for the breastplate, 28and spices, and oil for the light and for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense. 29The children of Israel brought a willing offering unto the LORD, every man and woman whose heart made them willing to bring for all manner of work, which the LORD had commanded to be made by the hand of Moses. 30And Moses said unto the children of Israel, "See, the LORD hath called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur of the tribe of Judah. 31And He hath filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship, 32and to devise skillful works, to work in gold and in silver and in brass, 33and in the cutting of stones to set them, and in carving of wood to make any manner of skillful work. 34And He hath put in his heart that he may teach, both he and Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach of the tribe of Dan. 35Them hath He filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of work of the engraver and of the skilled workman, and of the embroiderer in blue and in purple, in scarlet and in fine linen, and of the weaver --even of those who do any work and of those who devise skillful work."
